12/01/2021 1:30 PM 12/01/2021 2:00 PM America/New_York Andover Peabody Institute of Archaeology Webinar - Diggin’ In Series

Wednesday, December 1st, at 1:30 p.m. EDT: Join us for Season 3, Episode 9 of the Peabody Diggin’ In series, “How Past Food Inequality Shapes Modern Food Insecurity (And What We Can Do About It),” with guest speaker, Dr. Kimberly Kasper.

This talk highlights an interdisciplinary approach to uncover the origins of food inequality as related to food production, distribution, and access across the US South and more broadly in the US. The case study that will be discussed, Memphis and its surrounding rural landscape, is well known for its “Wall Street-like” slave-based economy and commodity crop (cotton) production. Dr. Kasper will demonstrate how an archaeological material based, intersectional inquiry and praxis can provide an innovative way of dissecting these plantation geographies while engaging the historical continuation, influence, and impact of slavery on the region’s food system and inclusive solutions for the present and future. Please sign up for this webinar at our new online registration page.
